  • Dear Iry-hor,

The flickr license here for Khendjer's pyramidion is currently 'All Rights Reserved.' The image will fail flickr review and be deleted within a day. Check the flickr license next time before uploading a photo. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 21:16, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

You're right, Juan told me he modified the copyrights but may have forgotten to do these and I did not checked them before uploading as he told me he had done so. I will tell him.Iry-Hor (talk) 21:18, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
  • You should always check just to be safe. I always do before I upload a picture from flickr. This flickr image of the Senebhenas scarab is also 'All Rights Reserved.' So, it will also be deleted by today/tomorrow. But you can upload the photo again when it is licensed freely. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 21:22, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
Look at this here. This guy knows when he sees something rare and takes a photo of it. That's why he is one hell of a good source !Iry-Hor (talk) 21:25, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: That photo you mention was originally taken in the Cairo Museum by Juan "Tomada en Agosto de 1987"--in August 1987. That is why he managed to take these rare photos since it was permitted then in this Museum. He likely then scanned the original image to put it on his flickr account. The Cairo/Egyptian Museum has banned all interior photography since mid-2005 so it would not be possible to take any photos there since mid-2005. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 23:55, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Pedubast II vs Pedubast III[edit]

Hello, I'm writing to you because of this file. I'm pretty sure that the object in the picture (Louvre N 503) bears the name of Seheruibre Pedubast III, rather than Sehetepibenre Pedubast II. I say this because the same object appears on an article (Jean Yoyotte, "Pétoubastis III", Revue d'Egyptologie 24 (1962): 216-223 ). If you can't check the article by yourself, I can send it to you via mail, just tell me. --Khruner (talk) 19:46, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Damnit ! Ok, I will edit the image caption ! Thanks for spotting the mistake !! Also I note that the English wikipedia does not seem to have an article on Pedubast III. If you have some material on this king, it would be a great addition to wikipedia if you created an article about him. You can contact me in wikipedia here if you need to. Thanks again !!Iry-Hor (talk) 19:54, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

A Ramessid trouble[edit]

Hello Iry-Hor. I noticed that you you can read hieroglyphics and I was wondering if you could help me with my - for now - unique upload on Commons. I took this picture at the egyptian museum of my town, where it is assigned to Ramesses X (Khepermaatra-setepenra Ramessesu-amonherkhepeshef-meriamon).
However, I tried to read this with my limited knowledge of hieroglyphic and I though to read Usermaatra-sekheperenra Ramessesu-amon()ef-meriamon instead, which is likely the full name of Ramesses V (Usermaatra-sekheperenra Ramessesu-amonherkhepeshef-meriamon), but curiously encased in a single cartouche. I would appreciate it if you could read this cartouche too, and tell me what do you think about it.
(To avoid misunderstandings, I am well aware of the fact that changing the caption on the basis of a personal reading would be an original research; it's just a curiosity of mine...) --Khruner (talk) 18:15, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

I can definitely read Usermaatra-Sekheperenre-Ramesissu-Amun-[her-khepesh]-f but note, there are no signs for her and khepesh. Such short forms are not unheard of though. This is certainly not Ramses X here since there is no Setep sign to be seen and the Sekheperenre is very clearly visible. That everything is inside a single cartouche is also not unique, although I don't have photos of other examples at hand. However what is remarkable to me is that the obelisk is very crude, an unmistakable sign of the decline of Egypt during the 20th dynasty. Also it is the first time I see Usermaatre written with only two signs (with the user sign on the knee of Maat, forming a single sign with it.) By the way, where was the photo taken ? EDIT: I just realized you took the photo at the museum of Bologna. The museum has a number of remarkable stele and statuettes from the 2nd intermediate period which would nicely illustrate the articles of certain pharaohs of the period (e.g. Merkawre Sobekhotep VII). Do you have photos of objects from the second intermediate period, which you could upload ? Iry-Hor (talk) 20:48, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Are the user sign and the maat sign bounded together? I thought the user staff was simply written a bit twisted. Could be said the same thing on one fo the amon sign, which seems to bears a khepesh-like sign in his hand, or that has nothing to do?
The caption provided by the museum is wrong after all. It's refers to Ramesses V then? I'd like a lot to point that out to the director of the museum so that she can correct the caption (and, thus, correct te caption of the uploaded file), but I don't think she will listen to me... Anyway, thanks a lot for your review.
I know that the museum has a few artifacts from the Second Intermediate Period (easily overshadowed by the quite famous statue of Neferhotep I), they consist in some stelae, but I don't know if these bears any royal names... Rather, the museum has several exhibits about the Third Intermediate Period - late-ptolemaic-roman period (my next upload will probably be a nice relief of Nectanebo I). But I will investigate about the S.I.P. displayed in the museum if you want. --Khruner (talk) 10:17, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
Well it looked to me like the user sign is bounded on the knee of Maat, an I got this impression strengthened by the fact that there are many signs representing divinity with one of their attribute protuding from their knee. For the khepesh sign, I couldn't say as I really was not sure from the photo if this is a khepesh or simply a scratch on the obelisk. For the identification, even without going into the details, the middle of the obelisk very clearly reads Sekheperrenre which is certainly not a name of Ramses X. If the curator reads hieroglyphs she will recognize that undoubtedly. Then she has to consult the litterature on the names of Ramses V and X. Any photo of stuff from the SIP is great for me as I try to write illustrated wiki articles for all the pharaohs of the period (I would prefer objects bearing the name of a king so I can place them in the relevant article). Even scarabs are great for this, and I believe the museum of Bologna has a lot of them. If you could browse your photos or come back to the museum for stuffs from the SIP, I would be very greatful to you !Iry-Hor (talk) 10:32, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
Allright, I might have something in mid-October, because in the next days I will be a little busy. About the scarabs, last time I noticed a pretty dumb thing. These royal scarabs do exist (about 30), are all set behind a glass case, but are not identified one by one: there is a single common caption that simply says "scarabs with regal name", so is necessary to read these scarabs one by one and look for some publication where they are cited... To complicate matters even more, the scarabs are located rather far away from the glass and are poorly lit. I'll do my best. --Khruner (talk) 11:51, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
I understand, I had the same problems at the Louvre with the lightning. If the scarab are not attributed, we may read the namem on them, provided the photo is clear enough (I am not sure this classifies as original research if the name is clearly readable). Also if they are given an inventory number, we may find them in the litterature. Ryholt's book is great for this. In any case, thank you very much !Iry-Hor (talk) 12:20, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Your uploads from flickr[edit]

Hello, you have uploaded some pictures from flickr, that seems not to be under Creative-Commons-Licence, f.e. File:Merenre_I.jpg and File:Mentuhotep VI.jpg I don't know why FlickreviewR has confirmed, they are licenced under cc-by-2.0, maybe this bot works incorrect.--Sinuhe20 (talk) 08:07, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

@Sinuhe20: No that's because the pics where under creative commons at the time of the upload but since then changed license. As far as I can tell, only the license at the time of the upload is relevant, and that is why the bot confirmed it. I hope it is still ok!Iry-Hor (talk) 08:19, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
